Turisas new logoSaw Turisas a couple of weeks ago, just before they embarked on a tour to America.

Missed the warm-up band entirely. The Saturday gigs in Tavastia start early (on account of the disco kicking off at 2330), and thus Daniel Lioneye was just too early for me.

Turisas played with their normal lineup, this time there were no massive orchestral manoeuvres on stage.

The setlist contained one third new songs, the obligatory cover song and a bunch of old classics:

Victoriae & Triumphi Dominus
As Torches Rise
One More
The March Of The Varangian Guard
To Holmgard and Beyond
Save the Day!
A Portage To the Unknown
In the Court of Jarisleif
Hunting Pirates
Rex Regi Rebellis
Stand Up and Fight
Battle Metal

Had heard the March of Varangian Guard and the title track of the forthcoming album previously – the other two new songs sounded interesting and complex enough not to give a verdict on the very first listen.

The album is out in two weeks time, definitely looking forward to it.
